Seal Party!!!!

For my Munchkins birthday this year, we worked on a seal theme chosen by the Munchkin herself. After searching around the web I realized, "Hey, Seal Parties.......NOT that popular."  
So, I had to make up the theme myself!! Here's the basic gist:
A fun interactive seal card inviation. Click HERE to see the video tutorial.
Our playroom became an underwater adventure room. I used crepe streamers in various shades of green and taped them to the ceiling and tossed them on the floor to be seaweed. White balloons became Harp Seal pups with a black permanent marker. I found a fishing net on sale for $2 and I draped that on the ceiling to give the room a little extra decor. :-) 
I sewed up some little black mesh bags and put in some sea themed coloring pages that I printed out, sea themed silly bands holding the coloring pages in place, clothespin fish that the munchkin and I made together, clothespin seals, a curly-q silly straw, and a small selection of plastic sea animals. The mesh bag was tied with a bit of the "seaweed" crepe. 

I also made some more polymer clay seals for the Munchkins collection:
Of course, we had our Rocker Seal:

And, I even made a cake. It was the most delicious 3 tiered yellow cake with buttercream frosting and fondant seals, rocks, and sea weed. Unfortunately, I didn't take any good pictures of the cake!! Here is the best that I could get:
The little white circles around cake and on the rock are actually nautilus sea shells. The picture doesn't do it any justice; I had to mess with the all the photo editor settings just to get this picture looking the way it does. :( But, you get the idea, right?? 

The Munchkin had a total blast. The seal party was a success with the young and the old. :-) 
Just before writing this post, I received an email from a woman (and fellow blogger) named Andie who had hosted a seal party last year!! If only I had known sooner, I would have found some inspiration from her party I am sure. :-) Here is the LINK should you want to check it out!!
